Friday Wrap-Up

Sunday Wrap-Up (1)

Thoughts

This past week, my blog hit 10,000 overall views since I started it back in September. I’m also nearing 1,000 subscribers, and my mind is absolutely blown by all of this. It’s surreal.

I started Read Yourself Happy because I was lonely and didn’t have any bookish friends to talk to in the city where I’m currently living. I wanted to share my love of reading and discuss books I read. A blog seemed like the perfect way to do that.

Since September, this website has become one of the most important parts of my life. While my day job is mind-numbingly boring and I spend my days getting screamed at by angry customers (I work in an insurance-related call center), my days off and nights are filled with writing, reading, and digitally connecting with so many new, wonderful people.

It’s hard for me to believe that there are people who enjoy my content and regularly read my blog. It’s wonderful but just doesn’t seem real sometimes. However, I am so, so, so thankful to every single person who has read a review, liked a post, or left a comment. It means the absolute world to me and has been a bright spot over the last few months when I’ve been struggling with job-related burnout and dealing with my bipolar diagnosis.

I love all of you guys so much. You’re all bringing so much joy to my life.

Bookish Spotlight

I recently discovered the book blog Novel & Waffles, and everything about Kat’s blog is amazing. The aesthetic of the entire website is delightful, and her content is on point. For an example of what I mean, check out her review of Marie Lu’s Champion.

Here are a few articles from Novel & Waffles to get you started:

(Note: I apparently forgot to post a Friday Wrap-up last week, so this will be a little longer than usual.)

  1. Actually thank YOU! I was late to the game and didn’t even know about book blogging til I started following your site, and I’m so glad that I did. It’s been super fun, and I look forward to participating in this communal love of reading in the years ahead.
